Is Jesus coming back? According to information from the Portuguese press, coach Jorge Jesus is not happy at Fenerbahce and talks are already underway with coach Atlético Mineiro in 2023.
According to Portugal’s “Record” newspaper, in recent days Meister has held talks with entrepreneurs associated with Atlético Mineiro, with the aim of changing the person in charge of Koke for next season. Eliminated from the Copa do Brasil and the Libertadores, Gallo is in seventh place in the Brazilian championship and has only a slim chance of the title, in addition to the dispute over the place in the continental competition of 2023.
After the departure of Koke, at the end of last year, Atlético came to play Jorge Jesus to take control of the team. Failing to recruit the Portuguese, he brought in Argentine Antonio “Turco” Mohamed, who was fired after being eliminated in the Brazil Cup to Flamengo.
The Portuguese is back on the athletic radar, which is going through a problematic phase, with only one win in the last five matches of the Brazilian. However, another Portuguese newspaper, “A Bola” claims that Fenerbahce is already moving to renew Jorge Jesus’ contract before the World Cup.
With a contract until the end of the European season, in June 2023, Jorge Jesus has just 14 games before Fenerbahce. In sixth place in the Turkish Championship, the club was knocked out in the qualifying round of the Champions League by Dynamo Kyiv and caused controversy in the Europa League.
